Kelker's Kids

There is a special group of kids at Billings Clinic with cancer or other serious blood disorders known as Kelker’s Kids. Billings Clinic has been caring for Kelker’s Kids since 1978 when Dr. Paul Kelker started the first pediatric oncology program in Montana.

Kelker's Kids DonateThese children and their families, with amazing grace and courage, face the overwhelming challenges of prolonged cancer treatments, distressing side effects and an uncertain future.

The burdens on these children and their families are immense. The Kelker’s Kids Fund was established at Billings Clinic Foundation to financially assist families during these difficult times. Assistance ranges from providing funds for travel necessary for cancer treatment to helping make ends meet. The Fund also supports gatherings and activities allowing the kids to experience the joys of being a child.

Your gift to Kelker’s Kids will allow families to focus on what is important - the care of their child.

I’m a freshman at Montana State University Bozeman studying Fishery Biology. My senior year of high school I was diagnosed at Billings Clinic with stage 4 Burkitt's lymphoma. I’m in preschool. I love to play dress up. When I grow up I want to be a Disney princess. When I was two and a half I had a Wilms tumor. I’m in 2nd Grade. I like singing, dancing and playing with my dolls. When I was two years old right before Christmas I found out I had leukemia. Hi my name is Will. I’m a freshman at Senior High. I’m a musician. In September of last year I was diagnosed with T-cell acute leukemia.
